This is a great little item I came across a while back. I love it because it’s really simple, packable and does what it’s designed to do quite well. The Canteen Grill Top Stove is exactly what the name suggests, and it takes an old, standard-issue piece of GI gear and greatly improves its durability and versatility. Made of heavy-gauge stainless steel, but still lightweight. No moving parts to wear out, break or lose. Just a solid, smart mini-grill that nests perfectly on the outside of a canteen cup.
Build a fire underneath, and you’ll have boiling water in a few minutes. Or, set it over a small alcohol stove, such as the Trangia Spirit Burner. You can also grill directly on top of it, and with a little creativity, you can probably come up with a number of other camp uses for the Canteen Stove.
All in all, a pretty useful piece of kit for $20.00.
The Canteen Stove is made in the USA and is available at the Canteen Shop, along with many other camping and “buggin’ out” supplies.
